Lunch Table Fight

So it wasn't much of a fight. The lunch table won. If you haven't heard, I am injury prone. In late October before school I lifted one of the tables left over from primetime to its closed and locked position. Turns out that in so doing I hurt my elbow. After an x-ray and MRI they have found that I have a moderate tear in my common flexor tendon near the spot it connects to my elbow. I am sharing this with you because as the injury occurred at worked and is filed with workman’s comp and I have to attempt I have to attend appointments when they are scheduled. At the current time the surgeon wants me to attempt physical therapy three times per week to see if we can recoup movement and reduce pain. The reason I share all of this is that the latest the appointments would be made was at 3pm on M,W, F. So if anything occurs at the end of the days on MWF you will need to notify Ms. Traci and Mr. Greiner.

Leadership Survey Released Soon from HR

Similar to last yera the HR department will be sending out a performance survey in the next month. This survey will have questions about district or system as a whole and also about me. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that it will be coming soon.
